COLONELS PHILLIPS and Mitchell
disagree widely as to the cause oi
McCook's flunk in the organization
of a volunteer company. Colonel
Mitchell charges the "Powers-
That-Be" with the humiliating
failure , and Colonel Phillips inti
mates that the purpose and name
of the organization were wrong ;
that there would be no difficulty
in organizing a whole beer brigade
here and all that sort of nonsense.
The redoubtable colonels are both
wrong : Too many of the boys
here have good jobs or are going
to be married , or hope to have
good jobs or to be married , or
any other old excuse you have a
mind to conjure up.

the speakers of the day , and among
his utterances were pronounced n
words against making the present
war a Avar of conquest n pronuu-
ciamento not a surprise to those of
his intimate acquaintances , if it
was to many of his hearers. The
day was a happy and proud one
for this commonwealth , and marks
a glad epoch for the state of Ne
braska , whose future history must
be larger and broader for the
events which cluster around the
